Evra claims Chelsea duo deserve Ballon d’Or over Messi

Former Manchester United defender Patrice Evra is “sick” of Lionel Messi winning the Ballon d’Or as he believes N’Golo Kante and Jorginho are more deserving of the award.

The nominees for this year’s Ballon d’Or were announced last week. Messi is among the frontrunners to pick up the accolade.

The Argentinian has previously won the award on six separate occasions between 2009 and 2019.



Along with Messi, Chelsea midfielder Jorginho is also considered to be one of the favourites to win the Ballon d’Or. This comes after he helped Chelsea and Italy win the Champions League and European Championships this year.

As reported by , Evra suggested that the Ballon d’Or should go to Kante or Jorginho:

“In my opinion this Ballon d’Or is for Kante or Jorginho… I’m sick of giving it to Messi,” Evra said.

“What did he win last year? Okay, the Copa America. With Barcelona what did he do?”

“I think Chelsea have got the manager to challenge. I’m just not sure, not convinced there’s enough goals in the team.

“I think Romelu Lukaku will score goals but are there enough people around him to score goals. I’m not sure Timo Werner will. When he plays for Germany he scores every game, for Chelsea he misses a lot of chances.

“I also don’t think Chelsea are great defensively. [Antonio] Rudiger has been really good but other than that, Thiago Silva is 36, he’s not going to play every game.

“[Andreas] Christensen is a young player. In the middle of your pitch Chelsea are alright. But I’m not sure Chelsea will score enough goals and defensively be good enough.”

Scholes added: “Mason Mount, he needs to start scoring goals. I think he’s a great player but he’s got to start winning games, almost in the mould as Frank Lampard.

“I see him as that type of player but Frank produced all the time and won games for his team. Mason Mount has to start doing that.”

Two Tottenham players test positive for Covid-19 before facing Newcastle

Two Tottenham Hotspur players have tested positive for Covid-19 ahead of Sunday’s game against Newcastle United.

The unnamed players trained with the rest of the squad on Thursday. But they were shown to have contracted the virus within the last 24 hours.

The duo will now isolate for ten days and this will see them miss Tottenham‘s next three games. They will be unavailable for their next league outings against Newcastle and West Ham, along with their midweek clash against Vitesse Arnhem in the Europa Conference League.



Both players are due to be retested on Saturday, as per standard procedure.

The club are understood to be confident that no other players will have to isolate having come into close contact.

In his press conference on Friday afternoon, Spurs boss Nuno Espirito Santo admitted that he has been left with “huge issues” following the latest international break.

The news will bring more frustration for Nuno, who saw his side suffer in the wake of September’s international fixtures when some squad members returned injured and three South American players went to Croatia for 10 days in order to avoid hard quarantine in England.

Spurs signed off before the international break with a 2-1 win against Aston Villa.

Nuno said earlier on Friday: “After the international break there are always huge issues that happen. We have problems but I will not say before the game.”
